Everything We Know About James Cameron’s Avatar Film Sequel So Far
From cast to news and what we know so far…There’s plenty more we know, and still have to find out: here’s everything we know so far about the Avatar 2 release date, title, plot, cast and more.
James Cameron’s long-awaited follow-up to his 2009 hit is on the way.
James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ first came out in 2009
What will the Avatar films be called?
BBC News reported that it had “seen documentation” which revealed the titles for the four sequels as the following:
Avatar: The Way of Water
Avatar: The Seed Bearer
Avatar: The Tulkun Rider
Avatar: The Quest for Eywa
However, nothing has been officially confirmed just yet and, even if the documentation is accurate, the titles could very well change before release. It was the highest-grossing film of all time for nearly a decade until Avengers: Endgame came out. However, Avatar hit theaters once again in a re-release, which allowed it to reclaim its title.
In a zoom interview the “DUNE” director Villeneuve asked Cameron how he paced himself filming the upcoming sequels.“We mixed the schedules for [Avatar] 2 and 3 together, based on the types of scenes and the environments,” Cameron said. “I said, let’s just treat it like it’s a six-hour miniseries and we’re only going to go to Frankfurt once. We’re going to shoot all the scenes from 2 and 3at the same time. That was more or less the motif.”
As far as we know about the filming , the film has always been known for its cutting-edge of technology.close to 60% of the film was computer-generated, according to an industry estimate.Instead of relying on past filming systems, Cameron used his own unique Fusion Camera System to shoot the film in 3D. This system has two high-definition cameras working in tandem to create a 3D image. Principal photography required shooting of live-action scenes that were combined with computer-generated images.
In conversation with CNN , Cameron gave a statement regarding how Covid has affected the production , “Covid hit us like it hit everybody,” the director said. “We lost about four and a half months of production. As a result of that, we’ve rolled around one more full year for a release in December of 2022. That’s been announced already.”he said.
As such, “Avatar 3” is on the books and is in Disney’s hands following the studio’s acquisition of Fox several years back.
As of this writing, we have no trailer of any kind for “Avatar 3.” Additionally, no plot details or synopsis have been revealed.
Avatar 2 will be premiering in December 2022, which is still a fair while away, but at least there won’t be another 10-year wait for the third and fourth movies as filming on those projects is currently under way.
